"Jackie Blount's intellect, scholarship, writing skill, and sensitivity to gender inequity and its tenacious hold on our society combine to give us a powerful book that is unparalleled in the literature on the topic to date." -- Sandra L. Gupton, University of Southern Mississippi
"Jackie Blount's work is both painstakingly researched and originally conceptualized, as it mines a field historians may have thought they knew. This important book on women who administered schools discusses identity, sexuality, power, authority, and educational practice. And it's a first-rate read!" -- Sari Biklen, Syracuse University
